0. Agenda bashing and Roll
1. Minutes Approval
        - 13 March 2009:   http://www.oasis-open.org/apps/org/workgroup/opencsa-ms/download.php/31656/Open_CSA_SC_20090313_Draft.txt
2. Open Action Item Review and Discussion
        AI20081212-001 - Coordinate an effort with Assembly TC to produce an
                SCA primer as the specs approach standardization (in review).

                STATUS: On Hold until we get closer to standardization.

        AI20090313-001 Jeff to send the following recommendation to
                the TC's.

                Steering Committee Recommends inclusion of the
                completed test suite with the main package for
                the initial CS vote.


        AI20090313-002 - Jeff to talk with mary to make
                the request to group SCA PR announcements.

                STATUS: COMPLETE - Should now be closed.
                Jeff send the following e-mail to Mary on March 13, 2009.
                Subsequent communications with Mary were done
                to inform her that Assembly and Policy specs should go
                first.  Any others that are ready at the same time should
                also go, but Assembly nor Policy should be held up waiting
                for another TC.  
3. Overall TC Milestones Status as discussed by LSC:
        Tentative dates for key milestones:

        On Feb 5, 2009 conf-call [A], the LSC discussed the following as the
        new anticipated schedule for the OpenCSA TCs:

           End Feb – Assembly and Policy TC to start 1st Public Review (60 day)
           Mid March – Other TCs to start 1st Public Review (60 day)
           End June – Finish all the work
           End July – Submit specs to OASIS for OS vote

        ASSEMBLY ONLY (now about a month behind schedule on testing work
                       resulting in the following [B])
           End Feb Test Assertion complete
           End March Test Case complete
           Mid April for Assembly TC only
           End June - 1st Public Review complete
        Recommendation that all other TC's set a similar schedule for
        for about one month later.        

        [A] http://lists.oasis-open.org/archives/opencsa-liaison/200902/msg00003.html
        [B] http://lists.oasis-open.org/archives/opencsa-liaison/200901/msg00013.html

        The following represents the current state of each TC relative
        to Public Reviews        

        * = PR 04/24 - 06/23

        SCA-Assembly TC Specifications (V1.1)
                * SCA Assembly Model Specification

        SCA-Policy TC Specifications (V1.1)
                * SCA Policy Framework

        SCA-Bindings TC Specifications (V1.1)
                  SCA Web Services Binding Specification
                  SCA JMS Binding Specification
                  SCA JCA Binding Specification
                  SCA HTTP Binding Specification

        SCA-BPEL TC Specifications (V1.1)
                * SCA WS-BPEL Client and Implementation Specification

        SCA-C/C++ TC Specifications (V1.1)
                * SCA Client and Implementation Model Specification for C
                * SCA Client and Implementation Model Specification for C++

        SCA-J TC Specifications (V1.1)
                  SCA Java Common Annotations and APIs Specification
                  SCA Java Component Implementation Specification
                  SCA EJB Session Bean Binding Specification
                  SCA Spring Component Implementation Specification
                   SCA JEE Integration Specification

        SDO TC Specifications (V3.0)
                  Service Data Objects Specification
                  Service Data Objects for Java

        What is the outlook for SCA-Binding, SCA-J and SDO TC specs?
        Where do each of these stand wrt Test Assertion and Test Case PR's?

4. Compliant implementation plans
        We know that we need something about mid year.  There are
        several companies working this but implementation timing is
        unknown.  Open Source (Apache Tuscany, looks to be one
        source for at least some of the TC's.  Fabric3 may be another).  
        Each TC will have to make it's own decision on what compliant
        implementations they are going to use based on what's available
        in the         timeframe of standardization and what their test plan
        looks like.

        The SC must eventually resolve the question of "how it will
        make approval decisions" and communicate this to the TC's.
        It is expected that the Testing Plans for each TC will
        incorporate implementation/testing aspects which encompass
        the broader "SCA" picture.

        We must address the following core questions:
          Are we all in agreement that the exit criteria in each
          charter applies to Member Submission for vote and not
          for Committee Specification approval?

          At this stage, what (if any) compliant applications
          are the likely candidates which the SC will likely
          generally accept?

        If there are no updates, then continue to hold on agenda for
        discussion at the next meeting.

5. StC Elections
        Three of the 7 Steering Committee positions (currently held
        by Sanjay, Jeff and Anil) are targeted for balloting
        May 13th - May 27th.
